Last Gadget Standing Nominee: Lark Up
It’s a charging dock for your iPhone or iPod Touch. It’s an alarm clock that doesn’t make any noise. It’s Lark Technologies’ Lark Up–and it is, if nothing else, unusual. You stick your iPhone or Touch in the bedside base station, where it tells you the time and lets you set an alarm. Then you put on the accompanying wrist strap. When it’s time to wake up, the strap vibrates, bringing you out of your slumber in a manner that the company says is “more peaceful” and “natural.” (It also lets anyone else nearby who might be asleep continue to snooze.)
The Lark Up will be available early next year. What’s your take–brilliant, silly, both, or neither?
